Ratchet and Clank are enjoying a stay in the bustling utopia known as Metropolis, when a distress signal from Captain Qwark informs them of an attacking armada. The connection is cut off, and the duo are now caught in the middle of an full-scale invasion led by the ruthless Emperor Percival Tachyon, a being known as a "Cragmite". Ratchet & Clank eventually escape the planet, and soon realize that Ratchet was their intended target. They stumble upon the Polaris Galaxy, and find Talwyn, who tells Ratchet about the "Lombax Secret". The duo once again set out into the galaxy, their mission this time to learn about their origins and past, and to discover why they are so special.
Clank also has his own side story where he discovers he has a soul. He can also speak to robots that only he can see, known as the "Zony", some of which unlock powers Clank never knew he had.
The duo is back for their latest adventure. Run and jump around many different worlds, from beginning to end. Take out enemies and bosses with your many weapons, use gadgets to acomplish various tasks, grind on rails, swing from Swingshot targets, fight in space battles, upgrade your armor, dress as a space pirate and dance their jig, and so much more. Clank returns as a playable character once again, teaming up with special creatures only he can see, who guide him along his adventures and give him new powers. Unlock the mysteries of the story - learn of your past, so you can save the future.
